High-Performance Java Microservices

Microservices have taken over as the preferred way to architect new enterprise systems. This is ideal for cloud deployments, giving maximum flexibility and the ability to dynamically scale different parts of the application independently. However, designing systems this way, even when using Java as the platform, is not without its challenges. Performance of microservices will have a significant impact on how successful an application is.

In this session, we’ll explore the challenges for Java-based microservices and explain solutions that will give you faster, more scalable applications. At the end you’ll have a clear picture of how to plan your next high-performance cloud-based application.
